    If you use the designs shown here, enlarge to a 9.5" unfinished block and trace the star as needed

    The PDF has a 5 pointed star, shaded light and dark points in 3 different styles. Hope you enjoy them.

I CAN'T COME UP WITH A NAME. I AM SICK OF LOOKING AT IT

    Any thoughts? The blue reminds me of the sea and I think of some kind of winding path too.

  5. Southwest Star - Variations on Designs w/ Attachments

These asymmetrical blocks are fun to design with in EQ7 with the "Block Serendipity" tool. I am attaching a few variations and the PP units.

I put everything in one e mail so no one has to click to go to my Flickr album where I store the rest of all the information that you see attached here and below. There are a few notes on the foundation page about the number of blocks and the border sizes as shown.

    I also included coloring sheets in case you want to do you own variation. Pattern makes

  7. Free Pattern Here:10 settings from one easy block

    This makes a 6 inch finished block, so that the HST can be made with charm squares, and the squares and rectangles can be cut from Jelly Roll strips that are 2.5" wide.

    by , 08-08-2013 at 01:43 PM

Hope it works. Hope you enjoy them. The PDF includes a coloring sheet and the templates (sample template and it's reverse). Together, they make 1/4 of the block, and are actual size

    I posted this in reply a long while ago for someone interested in making a star sampler. I have had lots of requests in the past few weeks for the paper pieced templates. I drew the block in EQ7. I will make a separate, quick blog post tonight with the pp templates if I can get it to work so those of you interested in the block can use it.

    Original reply: "I have always loved the Prairie Star. (See below). It works great with paper piecing. You can also make a quilt in a "star ...
